Bonefish, Permit and Tarpon are the Holeman’s seasonal targets, and there is nothing more exciting then stalking tailing fish on the flats in the pristine waters of the Florida Keys and waiting for your drag to scream. Permit can be finicky and when they don’t cooperate the boys don’t get upset…they go tangle with sharks, large and small on light tackle. Shark fishing with these guys is an absolute blast. The party starts with simply catching bait, but he excitement ramps up in a hurry as you see the sharks working their way towards the bait across the flats. Once you hook up, the adrenaline rush kicks into overdrive about the time you see a 100 lb Black Tip shark launch out of the water like a tarpon. After battling the fish to the boat comes the moment of truth when Bear says, “Wanna hold him for a picture.” I’ve learned from this Experience that catching sharks isn’t that difficult, but releasing them without losing any fingers…now that takes skill.
The Florida Keys:
From Key Largo to Key West, “The Keys”, are Mother Nature’s gift to everyone who enjoys playing on, in or near the water. If you can relate to at least one Jimmy Buffet song, you’ll fit right in as this is the place that inspired so much of his music. A short drive from Miami, The Florida Keys stretch 100 miles from the tip of Florida dividing the Atlantic Ocean and the Gulf of Mexico into distinctly different habitats for local and migratory marine life. Featuring North America’s largest reefs on the Atlantic side, the Florida Bay and backwaters of Everglades National Park ebb and flow with the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico on the “bayside.” Shallow water flats fishing for bonefish, permit, tarpon and redfish was practically invented here.
